DEMONICAL was spawned in March 2006 by former CENTINEX members Johan Jansson (guitars & vocals), Martin Schulman (bass) and Ronnie Bergerståhl (drums) – with a mission to return to the roots of death metal and deliver a sheer dose of darkness and brutality. The 4-track demo Blood Spell Divine was recorded in July 2006 with vocalist Ludvig Engellau (REMASCULATE) joining the line-up in November of the same year. Shortly afterwards the band signed a worldwide recording contract with the German label Cyclone Empire. The debut album "Servants Of The Unlight" was released in April 2007 and received great reviews and was praised by the metal press worldwide.
In November 2007 Temple of Darkness released a limited Demonical/Absu 7″ EP featuring one track from the Bloodspell Divine promo. After the release of the debut, DEMONICAL toured Europe twice and in December 2007 the band parted ways with vocalist Ludvig Engellau due to musical and personal reasons. DEMONICAL continued for a few months with various session vocalists until late March 2008 when Sverker “Widda” Widgren came on board as the new fulltime frontman.
Between December 2008 and February 2009, the band recorded their second album, Hellsworn, which was again recorded at Necromorbus Studios and released in May 2009. DEMONICAL went on a headlining tour to push the album with support coming from FACEBREAKER and TORTURE KILLER. A split 7″ EP with Paganizer was released by Cyclone Empire in early 2010. This limited vinyl featured an exclusive DEMONICAL track recorded at the “Hellsworn” session.
In September 2010 DEMONICAL once again entered Necromorbus Studios in the dark suburbs of Stockholm in order to record Death Infernal. This new album marks the band’s anticipated third full-length album, containing some of DEMONICAL‘s most varied, sophisticated, and potentially best material yet.
